For most of its history, Boston was the most Puritan of American cities, the city where things were “banned in Boston.” Yet a surprising amount of LGBT-themed art made its way into the MFA’s collections. Learn about the MFA’s hidden gay side, from its rich collections of ancient Greek homoerotica to lesbian scenes in classical Chinese painting to a genderqueer figure in a famous post-Impressionist canvas.

This is an official event of Boston Pride Week 2017. Proceeds partially benefit Boston Pride.
